engine replacement

  1. To remove head gaskets or not?

    Engine Topics
    I have a 93 Lt-1 engine that I'm going to put in my 83 elko, just wondering if I should change the head gaskets before I put it in my elko? I've been told that there is a pretty good chance that my heads will be cracked or have hair line cracks in them. Is it worth opening a can of head...
  2. Front end damage for 69 El

    Region 7 (AL,GA,TN)
    My 96 El Camino recently found itself with some extensive front corner damage. Where should I send it for body and whatever else is wrong inside repair? I am also looking to swap out the motor so ideally this mechanic/body shop would be able to take on this huge task. Thank You for your help!
